Shubman Gill, the Gujarat Titans captain, has been fined after his team maintained a slow-over rate during their Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match against Chennai Super Kings at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad on May 10.

As it was his team’s second offence of the season under the IPL’s Code of Conduct relating to minimum over rate offences, Gill was fined INR 24 lakhs. The rest of the members of the Playing XI, including the Impact Player, were each individually fined either INR 6 lakhs or 25 percent of their respective match fees, whichever is lesser.

The GT skipper, who also scored a ravishing century, his first of the season, was also adjudged Player of the Match for his brilliance on the field. Opening the batting alongside Sai Sudharsan, the duo put on a 200-plus partnership, as both the batters scored a hundred, by virtue of which the hosts were able to put on a target of 231/3 at the end of 20 overs. During the chase, Chennai Super Kings could only manage 196/8 despite quickfire half-centuries by Daryl Mitchell and Moeen Ali.

Have a good camaraderie with Sai Sudharsan: Gill

“Yeah just a cramp, nothing else (reason for being off the field). When you’ve got 100k people supporting you, becomes easier. Just the freeness of it. When we were batting out there, we didn’t have any targets in mind. We’re just maximising the opportunities in front of us. We have a good camaraderie between us. Even last year we batted a lot together. Lot of fun batting with him. In terms of numbers, definitely it is (best opening partnership for GT).

“Mohit (Sharma) bhai has done this for us the last couple of years. Even last year, his bowling was a revelation. Even this year, two to three bad games can happen to anyone. At one point we thought 250 was there for the taking. In the last 2-3 overs they bowled well also. Just had a feeling we were 10-15 short—not in terms of the match, but in terms of the NRR going forward,” the winning skipper said at the post-match party.
